Saturday Morning Astros, etc. Round Up

Last night HLP and I got to enjoy a pretty stellar game.  We were a little disheartened that our fabled pitcher's duel didn't come to fruition, baffled by Adam Everett making solid contact twice, and though we couldn't quite see it well, positive that Josh Anderson was out by a mile on that steal.  It was fun to be in the park to feel the energy of the crowd as we rallied back, so all in all, it was a great first game in 2009 for the both of us.  It could have only been made better if Jim Leeland would have come out and just jacked Joel Zumaya in the face after he walked in the tying run (something HLP and I speculated about has he made his march to the mound).

Quite a bit of news and notes to pass on your way for your Saturday morning enjoyment:
